"This is a very simple, healthy and elegant salad that is inspired by Indian cooking. The smoking though not necessary is highly recommended. It can be served with any lean piece of grilled meat, poultry or fish."

medium eggplant, cubed
1 1/2 cups
green onions, chopped
cilantro, finely chopped
ground black pepper
salt to taste
I kept the eggplant slightly chunky. It gave it more texture and substance. This is a very fresh and cool salad that I served with the Ugandan kebobs which are actually meatballs. This is a great compliment to any spicy chicken or beef and would be particularly good in the summer.
Thanks for the recipe! This is an exotic and delicate treat. My husband and I recently moved to Tel Aviv, and when we went on our first Israeli date, I got something very similar to this and LOVED it! I am so happy to find a recipe for it so that I can enjoy it again and again. The smoked flavor is a little strong, and is somewhat unexpected especially as it is served cold - but it is very good! Don't be afraid to try it! It really makes this dish unique. The smoking instructions given here are great - I never knew how to do that - Thank you!!
Very good! I had this with pita and red peppers on the side, and my teenage son (who does NOT like eggplant) and I made a meal of it. I did omit the smoking step and would like to try that another time. If I truly loved eggplant, this would have been a 5* recipe because it is a very delicious way to consume that vegetable.
